It would have been ugly, but an amfleet would have survived a lot better. I thought the same thing you did until I read some fairly informative posts on some web forums and yahoo groups about it.

Put it to you like this, I wouldnt want to be in either, and you are absolutely right about not being designed for something like that, but I would rather take my chances in an Amfleet or Acella.
